A crocheted cactus. Previously I tried knitting one (WAYYY too hard). Crocheting on the other hand was pretty simple.
I didn’t use a pattern, just free form all the way!
And I put it in one of the pots I made last year when pottery was my thing.
On Friday Merryn and I dragged the children around the op shops of Hamilton. They were very good!
There’s a Salvos, a Vinnies, a Lifeline op shop, one associated with the hospital (my personal fave) and a new one that mainly has furniture and is located in an old pub, The Argyle.
That’s five op shops.
I was quite a restrained. Here’s what I got ….
A pair of birky’s for Jemima with a unicorn on one and a fairy on the other.
And a matching poncho … That’s matching the shoes AND Maya (Jemima’s friend who also has a poncho).
And a crocheted blanket (don’t need it, just like it).
And two yellow Johnson ware side plates (I couldn’t pass them by).
And Scarlett got given a toy for free (which stopped an awful lot of complaining) … And Keely was given a head band. Hamilton has great op shops. And we didn’t even visit the tip shop this time …
